Bold Parent Credo

April 18, 2010 at 8:42 pm 1 comment

Maya Frost, who wrote The New Global Student, has launched a new Bold Parent website, all about “another way” of raising kids — to be happy, capable, confident, self-possessed, adventurous, and conscious.  We can, she says, help our kids keep and build their innate love of learning and their desire to embrace different kinds of people and explore new places.

How do we do this?  Firstly, notice when we are making choices based on “fego” (fear and ego) and stop it!  And a whole lot of other uber-conscious and totally loving ways that Maya articulates way better than I am right now, writing with two kids underfoot.

Check out her Bold Parent Credo for yourself, and see what you think!  I, for one, am going to post in on my fridge.  Thanks, Maya!

    Thanks for this, Megan! ;-)

    I think almost all parents have the right instincts–they just get cluttered up with things like fear, ego, too much media, etc.

    We all have the power to become bold parents, and the beautiful thing is that it’s EASIER than following the old fego way. Whew!

    Love it when better means easier. ;-)
